    Spend a day at the beach

    Discover your new favourite beach hangout in Lagos

    Lagos has several picture-perfect beaches (praia in Portuguese) dotted along the coastline. At the far end of town, Praia de Porto de Mos is a 3-km-long sandy beach surrounded by stunning cliffs. Thanks to its wide-open expanse, you'll always find a private spot to spread out your blanket here. It's also perfect for long, relaxing walks.

    Praia do Pinhão is a secluded sandy cove near Lagos’ old town with a scenic setting of transparent water sheltered by towering bluffs. The beach is generally quiet as access is via a long, steep staircase. While the super-clean, golden-sand Meia Praia attracts many people, the further east you walk, the more privacy you'll have. The eastern side of the horseshoe-shaped beach is also quite popular among naturists.
